Mother tongue, first language education

In some cases, children and youth have the right to mother tongue support and tuition. This comprises children and youth from families where at least one of the parents have another mother tongue than Swedish, and where the language is used at home.

Children in pre-school receive mother tongue support, while students in compulsory school and upper secondary school receive mother tongue tuition.
